LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Al Pacino picked up an Emmy on Sunday night for playing Dr. Jack Kevorkian in HBO's "You Don't Know Jack," but he isn't opposed to following it up with a guest visit to another Emmy award-winning show - the ABC comedy "Modern Family."
Pacino told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson on the red carpet before the event that he is a fan of the show, even if he doesn't watch it regularly.

"I don't see 'Modern Family' much, but a friend of mine's in it - Jesse Ferguson," the actor told Shaun, referring to Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett.
Al revealed that Jesse, who he previously starred with in the Shakespeare in the Park production of "The Merchant of Venice," which moves to Broadway in October, got the superstar to watch the popular sitcom.

Isabella Rossellini to head Berlin festival jury

BERLIN - Actress Isabella Rossellini will lead the jury at the annual Berlin International Film Festival in February.
Festival organizers announced the appointment on Monday. Festival director Dieter Kosslick described Rossellini as "a multifaceted, creative film artist with extensive experience in European, American and international cinema."
Rossellini's films include "Blue Velvet," "Wild at Heart" and "Fearless." She presented her directorial debut, the "Green Porno" short films, at the Berlin festival in 2008.
The festival didn't announce any other members of the jury that will award the top Golden Bear award and other prizes. This year, the panel was headed by filmmaker Werner Herzog.
The 2011 edition runs from Feb. 10-20.

Stars do sunset shades on Emmys red carpet

- A late-summer sunset with vibrant purple, red and blue gowns dominated the horizon at the 62nd Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. One-shoulder silhouettes, updos and bold jewelry also were big trends.
Lea Michele, a fairly new player to the red-carpet frenzy, nailed it in a very grown-up navy Oscar de la Renta gown with a strapless neckline and ruffled mermaid bottom.
"I wanted to do blue — I've done black and green," Michele said. "I was ready for blue to be the color, and I love Oscar de la Renta so when I saw this, it was like he read my mind."
This could have been a too-mature look for Michele, but her youthful energy was her best accessory, said Lawrence Zarian, of TV Guide Network's Fashion Team.
Michele is petite, noted Karla Martinez, fashion market director for W magazine, but the silhouette of her gown accentuated her shape just right.
"Glee" co-star Jane Lynch was one of the biggest — and surprising — hits of the night. The purple one-shoulder by Ali Rahimi "suited her spectacularly," Zarian said.
January Jones and Christina Hendricks, both from the heavily stylized "Mad Men," lived up to their on-screen fashionista counterparts in colorful look-at-me gowns. Jones wore a bright, electric-blue corset gown with an uneven hem and stiff A-line skirt by Versace, and Hendricks wore a pale lilac Zac Posen with feathers on the sleeves and hemline and the very low neckline audiences have grown accustomed to seeing her — and her hourglass figure — in.
But Zarian said that while he appreciated the risks both actresses took, they ended up with dresses that would get more attention than they would for wearing them.
"January's dress was very architectural, a beautiful blue, but the dress wore her. January has a such a passion for fashion herself, so she tends to dress the other end of the spectrum and not do a conservative Betty Draper," he said.
As for Hendricks, Zarian said the soft color was right for her, but the detailed gown, which was lovely on its own, had too much going on for such a voluptuous figure.
Sofia Vergara went with the statuette look in a gold, ombre beaded Carolina Herrera that Martinez loved, but she thought the matchy-matchy, oversized gold earrings were too much. She did like the diamond Stephen Russell pins that new mom Amy Poehler used to jazz up her tank-strap slate-blue Max Azria gown and the floral Lorraine Schwartz earrings on Jane Krakowski.
Krakowski also touched on the blue, one-shoulder and updo trends in her custom Escada gown and soft, wavy locks.
Elisabeth Moss wore a chic, dove-gray Donna Karan one-shoulder, and Julie Benz had one a white one by Pamella Roland. Emily Blunt's goddesslike, lilac gown had cream-colored beads on the straps. Edie Falco went very sleek in a one-shoulder, black Bottega Veneta.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus found a way to stand out in black: She tapped longtime friend Narciso Rodriguez to make her black, square-neck gown with a sheer panel on the bodice that should send everyone to the gym. Her Irene Neuwirth turquoise earrings and bracelets captured the right seasonal, boho vibe.
Tina Fey, in an Art Deco-style Oscar de la Renta, and Eva Longoria, in a tight-bodice, ruffled-bottom Robert Rodriguez, also were in the black-dress club that's always in force at awards shows.
Kelly Osborne, who's joining E!'s "Fashion Police," showed off her post-"Dancing With the Stars" shape in a sophisticated black gown with a V-neck and jeweled gathered at the shoulders by Tony Ward.
Heidi Klum did black, but she went short in a micro-mini by Marchesa. "Well, you kind of look at what the choices are and then you kind of go with what you love the most," she said. "It's not like there's a whole game plan, it has to be short, or anything like that."
Marchesa also designed the white, jeweled halter gown worn by Kim Kardashian.
Jamie Cadwell, director of the Diamond Information Center, noted that Kardashian did the stacks of diamond bracelets that is "the modern way to do diamonds." (Kardashian's platinum cuff bracelet with 80 carats of champagne and white diamonds were by Lorraine Schwartz.)
Cadwell said a slew of classic diamond drop, stud and chandelier earrings gave balance to the mostly colorful, contemporary gowns. But "classic" doesn't have to mean subtle — Jones' 10.12-carat Cartier platinum-and-diamond stud earrings were valued at $1.2 million.
Julianna Margulies had a fair amount of glitz on her embellished, midnight-blue L'Wren Scott gown, and Claire Danes' Giorgio Armani Prive bronze strapless gown was fully encrusted with Swarovski drop crystals and iridescent sequin beading.
Anna Paquin's black gown was practically gold plated around its shoulders and bustline. Newlywed Paquin matched husband Stephen Moyer in Alexander McQueen; he opted for a classic tux but hip skinny tie.
W's Martinez was pleased to see so many men in classic bow ties, though, Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm, among them.
"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy bought into the blue trend big time, wearing a blue jacket, tie and mirrored sunglass lenses. He gave the rare shout-out to the designer Tom Ford in his acceptance speech after winning the award for directing a comedy series.

Nurse Jackie star Edie Falco still insists she's not funny. Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston says his third win might be too sweet. Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi reveals that she smacked her competition, literally.
Here's what Sunday's Emmy winners said backstage:
"Honestly, I was rooting for either Michael Emerson or Terry O'Quinn to take it because I'm obsessed with Lost."
-Best supporting actor in a drama winner Aaron Paul, on who he thought would win in his category
"That is bulls---! I'm not eligible for next year? God! Are you kidding? I'm so grateful. It's like having a great meal to do the show, and then to be awarded an Emmy is a beautiful flamb dessert. I feel gluttonous. I feel like I'm going to become a diabetic."
-Best actor in a drama winner Bryan Cranston, on his ineligibility to be nominated next because of Breaking Bad's hiatus
"It's pretty serious, the stuff that we deal with. This whole comedy world is literally new terrain for me... The women I was up against are hysterically funny comedians. I'm not playing coy. I'm really dumbfounded by the events of the evening."
-Best actress in a comedy winner Edie Falco, on why she was surprised to win in the comedy category
"I just wanted someone somewhere to say, 'I just want to have a beer with that guy' regardless of his sexuality."
-Best supporting actor in a comedy winner Eric Stonestreet, on how he approaches playing Cameron.
"I was really, really mean to the host of The Amazing Race on the red carpet. I think I hit him thrice with my purse and I said I was taking him down and guess what? I was right!"
-Best reality competition program winner Padma Lakshmi, on Top Chef ending Amazing Race's 7-year winning streak
"I'm the lamest, old, tired man, but I think this gives me enough energy to make it to 10:30 or 11:00."
-Best actor in a comedy winner Jim Parsons, on how he'll celebrate his big win.
"John Krasinski came over to my house with a bunch of guys and we played basketball. If you see him later, he's limping. I just want to say -- *wink* -- he lost a step.'"

Jimmy Fallon makes nice as host of Emmycast

NEW YORK - Nice job, Jimmy.
As host of Sunday's Emmy broadcast, Jimmy Fallon struck a clear contrast to last year's host, Neil Patrick Harris, who wowed viewers with his sleek versatility and cool.
Fallon is a versatile performer, too, but the Harris brand of show-biz smooth just isn't part of his skill set.
Instead, Fallon is puppy-dog eager, a nice guy who wants to accommodate his guests and his audience. He's a TV star who never pulls rank, a celebrity who seems to see himself as an equal to his fans. As he's demonstrated since taking over "Late Night" 18 months ago, that's not the worst thing for a TV personality to be.
He demonstrated it all again on the Emmycast, aired live by NBC from Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre.
The show started with a bang as Fallon bumped into the stars from "Glee," who complained that, in the spirit of the high school students they play, they couldn't afford the tickets to the Emmycast. Solution: Put on a show to raise money! "Glee" stars joined forces with Tina Fey ("30 Rock"), Jon Hamm ("Mad Men"), Jorge Garcia ("Lost"), Randy Jackson ("American Idol") and others in a song-and-dance rendition of "Born to Run," complete with Fallon in jeans and white T-shirt channeling Bruce Springsteen.
Then, in brief opening remarks, he scored a bulls-eye when he explained that "NBC asked me, the host of 'Late Night,' to come to Los Angeles to host a different show. What could possibly go wrong?"
Cut to Conan O'Brien, Fallon's "Late Night" predecessor and the short-lived host of "Tonight," seated in the hall giving the camera a world-weary nod.
The broadcast was neatly divided into genres (comedy, reality, drama, variety, and miniseries and movies), each of which Fallon introduced with a few riffs accompanied by guitar and a different star beside him. The reality category was introduced by "they don't have writers and they don't have plots, they're the only thing on TV that people still watch."
The show's brisk pace was assisted by the occasional brief but funny filmed bit, such as suggestions for how to improve the ABC comedy (and soon-to-be-Emmy-winner) "Modern Family": Have the show's gay couple adopt a second child, Stewie, the tyrannical baby from the cartoon series "Family Guy"; film the show in 3-D to highlight cast member Sofia Vergara's voluptuousness; and swap out one of the male regulars for George Clooney.
Fallon proved himself a quick-change artist as he performed a musical tribute to beloved drama series that ended their runs last season.
Glitzed up as Elton John at a pink piano, he marveled to the tune of "Candle in the Wind" that "24" hero Jack Bauer "never went to the men's room, how did he hold it in?" And as Green Day's Billie Jo Armstrong, he wailed a farewell to "Lost": "The island, it was mystical, and in the end they died. I didn't understand it, but I tried."
Presenter Ricky Gervais was predictably a hoot. He wondered aloud why the Golden Globes serves alcohol to those in attendance, but not the Emmys.
"Who wants a beer?" he trumpeted as waiters arrived, dispensing beer to the theater's first few rows.
Then he expressed sly delight that the winner of his designated category (directing for a variety, music or comedy special) was named Bucky Gunts.
"I didn't know you could say that on television," Gervais chortled.
The night's biggest letdown, at least for anyone who cared (and that probably included Fallon, a champion of social media): the much-touted intros solicited from the tweeting public. The few chosen for reading on-air ranged from stupid to nonsensical. (Sample: "Tina Fey — I'd hit that.") As a Twitter showcase for a mainstream TV audience, it was a missed opportunity.
But that was a minor shortcoming in a show that moved with slick efficiency, nicely energized by Fallon. "The fact that I get to work in TV is beyond belief," he told viewers at the start, and his delight in being there was infectious throughout.

George Clooney wins humanitarian award at Emmys

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - George Clooney on Sunday added another trophy to his Oscar, two Golden Globes and slew of movie critics awards -- but this one had nothing to do with acting.
Clooney was presented with the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award at the Primetime Emmy Awards for his work to raise awareness of the crisis in Darfur, and fund-raising efforts for causes ranging from Hurricane Katrina to the Haiti earthquake and the victims of the September 11 2001 attacks on New York and Washington DC.
"It's important to remember how much good can get done because we live in such strange times where bad behavior sucks up all of the attention and the press," Clooney said as he accepted the award.
The actor said he hoped there were others who could step in and "help find a way to keep the spotlight burning on these heart-breaking situations that continue to be heartbreaking long after the cameras go away."
Television Academy chairman John Shaffner said Clooney, 49, was "an obvious choice" for the humanitarian award because he had "understood and harnessed the power of reach into the hearts of people around the world."
Clooney, one of the most popular figures in Hollywood, was one of the main organizers of charity telethons for victims of the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and Hurricane Katrina which devastated New Orleans in August 2005.
He was appointed a United Nations Messenger of Peace in 2008 and in 2006 addressed the United Nations Security Council over the refugee crisis in Sudan's conflict-torn western Darfur region, which has taken the lives of more than 300,000 people.
Backstage, Clooney talked about how the award differed from his previous accolades for acting and writing.
"It's embarrassing because you don't want to be awarded for doing what you're supposed to do," he said. "It's a very kind thing, so you accept it. But it's very hard to take."
Clooney, who first found fame on television as the handsome Dr. Doug Ross in hospital drama "ER", has never won a traditional Emmy Award, although he was nominated twice for his work in "ER" in 1995 and 1996.
He won a best supporting actor Oscar for his role in the 2005 movie "Syriana".
The Bob Hope Humanitarian Award was created in 2002 in memory of the late entertainer. Previous recipients include Oprah Winfrey and Bill Cosby.

Vignettes from the Emmy Awards

LOS ANGELES - The red carpet at the Emmys is usually all about celebrities shmoozing each other, reporters shmoozing celebrities and fans ogling them all. But Sunday was also the five-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, so some stars had their minds on New Orleans and its recovery since the storm devastated the city.
"It's a good day to think about all the people that didn't have to help but did," said John Goodman, whose character on HBO's "Treme" railed against the government's inefficiency in sending aid to New Orleans post-Katrina. "They gave a lot of time and money and helped the city get back on its feet.
"There ain't nothin' like it on the face of the Earth," he said of New Orleans.
Susan Sarandon, meanwhile, was in Louisiana a few months ago, shooting the movie "Jeff Who Lives at Home" with writing-directing brothers Jay and Mark Duplass, when the British Petroleum oil spill happened.
"The city is one of the most fantastic original cities that you could possibly find anywhere in the world, and they're slogging along, but we forget how much they've been through and I don't think there's been enough progress. And what's happening now with the oil spill is just horrible," Sarandon said.
"We've been given the impression that it's somehow been solved but there's a lot — a lot — of damage that's still going on, and so I think we need to keep it at the forefront."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Modern Family," winner of three Emmys including best comedy series, features a gay couple who are married with an adopted daughter, giving the show relevancy in the wake of California's Proposition 8, which outlawed same-sex marriage and recently was overturned.
"I can only tell you what people say to me: We get amazing compliments from kids of same-sex marriage families," Eric Stonestreet, who won best supporting actor in a comedy series, said backstage.
Recently, a man came up to Stonestreet and "said he was raised by two moms and they adopted another daughter. When he was in school, there was no reference to two moms or two dads raising a child. He just wanted to thank me and tell the producers thanks for giving his sister something to point the bullies and the people who make fun of her at school to and say, 'Look at Mitch and Cam. That's what my family is and you like them.'"
George Clooney, recipient of the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award, also talked backstage about Prop 8: "These are those kind of things that take long, long times to change. People will look back at this period of time of history and think of it as an archaic time. It's a slow rolling process and it will happen eventually."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Where did real life and Hollywood truly intersect? In the Emmy Awards audience.
Assisted suicide champion Jack Kevorkian and animal sciences expert Temple Grandin, both the subject of HBO movies that earned honors at Sunday night's Emmy telecast, sat in the audience with the creators of their shows. They got to applaud as the actors who portrayed them, Al Pacino and Claire Danes, won Emmys for their work.
And each got to hear effusive praise from the people who brought their stories to life — along with one of the funniest lines of the night.
"I'm grateful you're my friend," said Adam Mazer, who won an Emmy for writing "You Don't Know Jack," about the right-to-die activist and his fight for assisted suicide. "I'm even more grateful you're not my physician."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Bones" star Emily Deschanel was one of many actress who wore purple on the red carpet at the Emmys, but her choice was especially striking: a floor-length, one-shouldered gown in a bold, deep purple with tiered ruffles from Max Azria Atelier.
"I just put it on and loved it. I love this color, this particular shade of purple," Deschanel said. "It was just one of those things where you try on a couple dresses, and they're nice, but then you try this on and it's, 'This is the one.' ... And then, of course, you have to try on about 20 other ones just to make sure this is the one. And then ... you go with this one!"
Jane Lynch didn't spend quite so much time sorting through choices before putting on her own purple gown for the evening, a one-shouldered number with a diamond brooch on the strap from Ali Rahimi, "who makes every dress I wear to these things."
"He chose the color, he chose everything about it, because he's really good at this stuff, so I just let him do what he wants," said Lynch, a winner for best supporting actress in a comedy series for her role as the acerbic Sue Sylvester on "Glee."
As for all the vibrant colors women wore on the carpet, Lynch said, "It's kind of the antioxidant colors, like strawberries and blueberries."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The red carpet at the Emmy Awards can be exciting and glamorous — all those stars, all those jewels, all the glamour! But it's also a little loud and crowded and swarming with media, on the ground and in the air, as Jesse Tyler Ferguson from "Modern Family" found.
"It's so unbelievable. It's very hot," said Ferguson, who had been nominated for best supporting actor in a comedy series — an award that went to his on-screen husband, Eric Stonestreet. "I feel like there's, like, a bandit loose or something 'cause all the helicopters are going. I'm thinking maybe there's a convict on our heels.
"This is very overwhelming," he added. "It's really exciting."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Some of the ladies from "Glee" were also the ladies in red on the Emmy Awards red carpet.
Jessalyn Gilsig walked up first in a clingy, floor-length Nicole Miller gown with a train and a ruffle down the side.
Why did she choose it?
"I just knew," she said. "I put it on and I said, 'You know what? I don't care what happens tonight, I love my dress.' It makes me feel strong and it makes me feel happy and hopeful. Those are all good things."
A few moments later, co-star Jenna Ushkowitz walked up in her own long, red gown, designed by Kevin Hall and accessorized with gold Neil Lane jewelry.
So why did she choose hers?
"I feel like people don't usually wear red, so that's why we're wearing red. I put this one on, it was the first one and it just felt right, you know? It felt good. And you just know."
Then Gilsig ambled by and the two greeted each other with a "Hey, lady in red." But Ushkowitz joked afterward: "We should call each other. Last time we wore the same designer."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Before the Emmy Awards telecast Sunday night, host Jimmy Fallon posted a video on Twitter of himself backstage at the Nokia Theatre preparing for the show.
"I'm so excited," said Fallon, while gripping his hair anxiously.
Conan O'Brien, also posted on Twitter:
"Hey gang! I'm off to The Emmys on NBC! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Most "Glee" cast members who attended Sunday's Emmy Awards wouldn't divulge much about the cameo Britney Spears recently shot. If they had a chance to meet her at all, they were pretty hush-hush, hoping to maintain some mystery. But Naya Rivera couldn't help but gush.
"She was just so fabulous," said Rivera, who plays Santana Lopez on the show. "She's one of those rare people that you meet and that are exactly like what you think that they were like. She doesn't disappoint. And she was beautiful and looked fabulous and her body was amazing. That was a highlight in my life."
Show co-creator Ryan Murphy has said Spears would act in an episode that's "reverential about her."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — While long gowns and jewel tones ruled the red carpet at the Emmy Awards, Christine Baranski made a statement in her own typically theatrical way: She wore a vintage 1970s black tuxedo jacket and pants by Yves Saint Laurent.
"You know what, I bought this in Paris at a vintage store when I was in Paris seeing the Yves Saint Laurent retrospective," said Baranski, who lost supporting actress in a drama series for "The Good Wife" to her co-star Archie Panjabi. "He's my favorite designer and so I decided, why not do the guy thing this year? It's so much easier than having a train and worrying about your cleavage and all of that. I'm loving it."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sunday was yet another opportunity to celebrate for Aaron Paul, who won the Emmy for supporting actor in a drama series for his role on "Breaking Bad." He took a swig of champagne before climbing onstage to speak to reporters.
"I can't believe I own her," Paul, 31, said backstage while looking down at his shiny new award. "I get to take her home. It's fantastic."
He then noted one of the benefits of having a birthday that falls close to the ceremony: "Glenn Close actually sang me 'Happy Birthday' two days ago, and that was remarkable."

Jesse Csincsak and pregnant Ann Lueders, former contestants on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, got married Saturday in Las Vegas.
The two -- who are both 28 -- plan on throwing a poolside bash Sunday at Las Vegas resort Rumor. Around 20 former Bachelor stars are expected, including newlyweds Jason and Molly Mesnick, Jesse Kovacs and Vienna Girardi.
PHOTOS: Before they were on The Bachelor
Csincsak, a pro snowboarder, and Lueders, a former flight attendant, met last year on a cruise for former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants.
In a video interview on RadarOnline, Csincsak proposed to Lueders with a $22,000 custom-made, 2-carat princess cut engagement ring designed by Rob Levit of northeastern Ohio-based Levit Jewelers Inc.

"I've spent the last year getting to know you," he told her. "I would never have dreamed this would happen, but I've fallen in love with you, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you."
This past spring, Lueders, 28, learned she was expecting. (They recently announced they'll be having a boy; they're naming him Noah.)

In 2008, Csincsak won the fourth season of The Bachelorette, capturing the heart of DeAnna Pappas (Lueders appeared on Jason Mesnick's season of The Bachelor).
Csincsak and Pappas, 28, called it quits a few months after the show's finale.

Halle and Gabriel's United Front

Gabriel Aubry gives his daughter Nahla a shoulder ride. Staying true to their promise to be "together forever, all three of us," former couple Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry proved once again that they're committed to staying on good terms for their daughter Nahla when they stepped out together with the 2-year-old in London Thursday.
Halle and Gabriel -- who are still amusingly color-coordinated when it comes to their chic outfits -- ended their relationship back in April after four years together, but have remained amazingly civil for the sake of their daughter.

Aubry, 33, recently accompanied Halle and Nahla to South Africa while the Oscar-winner filmed her latest thriller "Dark Tide," and in an interview with Vogue, Berry addressed the post-split rumors of discord head on: "Gabriel and I had long dealt with it," Berry, 44, said of their breakup, adding, "We were done. And we were on a good foot, and we had decided what we were going to do for Nahla, and we were able to say, 'This will pass.'"

She continued, "We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that's why we came together. We are a family until we are not here any more."

We're sure the tabloids will be on 24/7 bump watch as these shots of Halle show her displaying a slightly protruding tummy, but as much as we'd love to see the most beautiful child in Hollywood score a sibling, we're thinking Halle may have just had a good English pub lunch of fish and chips!

As almost everyone on the planet knows, The Oprah Winfrey Show will come to an end this spring after 25 years of groundbreaking interviews, emotional reveals, multiple awards and the best giveaways ever. Arguably the most influential TV personality of all time, Oprah Winfrey has helped sell millions of books and launched a myriad of successful careers. Her next venture, OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, kicks off January 1, but her talk show is still her No. 1 priority. "My intention is to be fully present this season," says Winfrey, 56. "To take in every experience and allow myself to feel it all."

TV Guide Magazine: Why did you decide to end your show after this season?
Winfrey: It just feels like the right time. I always wanted to leave when I felt the platform was still vital and held some kind of meaning in the hearts and minds of the audience.

TV Guide Magazine: The Oprah Winfrey Show has been a major part of your life for 25 years. Will there be a lot of tears?Winfrey: I don't intend to be crying the whole season. The only time I get really emotional and nostalgic about the show is when I think about the viewers. Hopefully some of them will follow me to OWN, but I know not everybody will. And it will be bittersweet because it's bringing this chapter to a close. The show hasn't been a big part of my life. It's been my life. I didn't have children. I had the show. And I have created a family of support from my staff and the audience that really has had a huge impact on my life.

TV Guide Magazine: How will you top last season's kick-off—the Black Eyed Peas concert with half of Chicago dancing in a choreographed number?Winfrey: We're not closing down any streets and I don't know if there will be any dancing. But it will be meaningful in its own way. And I absolutely can't tell you what it will be.

TV Guide Magazine: Throughout the season, will you go back to your favorite moments on the show?Winfrey: There will be some of that. We have nearly 5,000 hours [of footage], and we broke up into different teams of people who have over the past eight, nine months looked at every single show.

TV Guide Magazine: Wow. Impressive.Winfrey: That's what I say, too. [Laughs] They have reviewed and documented every single show, so we know what to revisit. I plan on going back to Forsyth County [in Georgia]. That's the town where there were no black people allowed and a guy was using the N-word with me. I'm going to do a tour of the new Forsyth County with him. I'm also going to go back to Williamson, West Virginia, where the town wouldn't allow a young man who had AIDS in the grocery store. His name was Michael Sisco. He's since died.

TV Guide Magazine: What about celebrity guests?Winfrey: This year is about creating moments. So I can assure you we're saying to all of our celebrity friends this is not the year you can come on and just promote your book or promote your song. You have to create moments. So the team is looking at ways of pairing different celebrities to create unexpected moments. They had asked me, because after Mary Tyler Moore's [surprise appearance] — when I went into the ugly cry on the air — I made a rule that I was never to be surprised again on air. I don't want to lose that kind of control. If you've ever looked at that tape, snot's running out of my nose and I had such a headache that I couldn't focus. I don't handle surprise very well.

TV Guide Magazine: Have you asked President Obama to make an appearance?Winfrey: No, I did not ask him to come on this year. But I did say, "I'm sure you will hear from somebody on my team before this year is over." [Laughs] I'm sure that at some point I will see a taped message or something.

TV Guide Magazine: Is it true that you're trying to locate the people who were on your first show and in the audience for your first national show?Winfrey: That is true. Our record-keeping wasn't as solid then as it is now. [Laughs] Those were the days when I would go out on the street and ask people to come in: "Come in! It's air-conditioned."

TV Guide Magazine: How did Oprah evolve into a show that is about inspiration and aspiration?Winfrey: Yesterday I was looking at a skinhead show [we did in 1988], and I said to my staff, "That's the show that caused me to do television differently." What I learned from that is you cannot allow yourself to be a vehicle that promotes the energy of hatred in any form. That was life-changing for me.

TV Guide Magazine: You've helped launch the TV careers of Drs. Phil and Oz and now Nate Berkus. Do you feel like a proud mama?Winfrey: It's more than being a mama. It's Mother Goose trying to lay an egg every day. Phil started when I said, "Gee, I like what you're telling me. Maybe somebody else will like what you're saying." But viewers didn't like him at first because they're not used to people being that straightforward and direct. And so I said, "I can course-correct this. I will go on the air and tell people this is who you are, that you tell it like it is." Once I did that, people started writing in saying, "I want Phil to tell me like it is!" It became apparent after a while that he could do this on his own. So that started very organically. And after Phil worked so well, we thought OK, let's see if Oz has the ability to do that. And so it is with Nate.

TV Guide Magazine: Is there a secret to creating a great talk show?Winfrey: The secret is authenticity. The reason people fail is because they're pretending to be something they're not. And even those who are not in alignment with my value system, people like Jerry Springer, he works because he's real. If you can find what the passion is and figure out a way to express that in an authentic and entertaining way, you have a chance at success.

Heidi Montag's Plastic Surgery Regrets

Heidi Montag confesses her plastic surgery has had major consequences in the new Life & Style. Nathanael Jones/ Just when you thought all the drama of the former "Hills" couple known as Speidi couldn't get any more ridiculous -- their alleged split, Spencer's plans to direct a movie with 3D breasts, and now, the sex tapes he claims to have -- Heidi has taken it to the next level. Nine months after she packed in 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, the busty blonde says going under the knife was the downfall of her marriage.

"Spencer begged me not to get the first surgery [a nose job and breast augmentation in 2007] and it almost broke up our relationship," Heidi tells Life & Style in a new interview. "Then he begged me not to get the second one and it did break our relationship."

After the surgery, Heidi needed help doing everything. "No one wants to be taking care of his wife -- who looks like she was in a horrific accident -- 24 hours a day, when he begged her not to do it in the first place," Heidi says. "Spencer didn't sign up for this in our marriage."
Heidi didn't sign up for those creepy crystals Spencer's been lugging around lately, either, but who cares now? The couple has legally filed for a divorce to be finalized on Valentine's Day. But when they were photographed together in Costa Rica last week, it left people convinced of what we had all suspected: the breakup was yet another publicity stunt. Heidi later told People Spencer was there to help her and her pets get settled there.

The photos also left some people scratching their heads over why Heidi was wearing surgical tape on her nose. "Except for filming and a few photo shoots, I've had my nose tape on 24 hours a day since November," she explains. "The last time I didn't wear tape after surgery and my nose changed shape. I don't want my face to fall off like Michael Jackson's."

Fair enough. The order to wear the tape came from Heidi's former surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, who died in a car accident August 16. The aspiring pop star claims she's searching for a new doc in South America, because her size G implants are too large.

"I'm downgrading and going a little smaller, to a D or a double D," she says, adding her chest keeps her from working out and hugging her dogs. "It's heartbreaking. I can't live an everyday life." And with the death of her surgeon, Heidi admits she "feel[s] trapped in my own body. There's just no fixing it."

Kelly Osbourne will show off her new svelte look and blonde hairstyle when she bares almost all as part of an invite-only Pussycat Dolls burlesque revue in Los Angeles next week (01Sep10).
The reality TV star will join singer Mya and PCD Revue regular guest Carmen Electra at a party filmed for Donovan Leitch's new documentary Sunset Strip.
Kelly Osbourne has just launched her movie career after landing her first leading role in new film Should've Been Romeo, which she started shooting on Wednesday (25Aug10).

Alicia Keys' new husband Swizz Beatz has spoken of his "amazing" love for the singer, insisting marriage has made him feel like a "better man".
The No One hitmaker exchanged vows with the rap producer last month (Jul10) in a romantic ceremony in Corsica, France and the singer is expecting the couple's first child later this year (10).
Swizz Beatz reveals he feels "blessed" to have finally tied the knot with the woman he loves, and is convinced their union can only grow "stronger".
He tells, "It's a blessing... I look at my relationship with my wife as a union that's just connected... spiritually...
"Love is a word that's powerful but the feeling is even stronger. To identify that feeling is something that's amazing because it doesn't only come from your partner. It comes from your love for music, your love for people, your love for a lot of things, and I think that once you identify the feeling of love, you'll be a better person. I'm a better man. I think that having love in your life, it just has that effect. Because then you spread love. You can't enjoy love without spreading love."

Mariah Superstitious, But US Mag Steals And Lies


By: Roger Friedman in Celebrity // August 27th, 2010 at 3:11 AM UTC
I guess it’s a necessary part of the gossip game on the internet. But now it’s got to stop.
On Wednesday, I posted a story about Mariah Carey being superstitious,and not wanting to say anything about whether or not she was pregnant. How did I know this? Her publicist, Cindi Berger, called me and gave me Mariah’s quote from Brazil. Berger called no one else, and nothing was posted on Carey’s website.
Yesterday, US Magazine helped themselves to the quote. They used it without credit. They even included my editing. Idiots. What’s worse, they out and out lied: US said the statement had been found on Carey’s website. It wasn’t true, and they didn’t care.
The result was a number of news outlets picking up the “superstitious” statement, along with the US assertion that it came from Mariah Carey’s website. I didn’t see all this until late in the day because I’d been traveling. Nicely, and graciously, a few sites changed the attribution over to Showbiz411. I’m hopeful that more will do the same when they read this notice.
Yes, I know US Weekly is a rag full of crap, made up stuff and eavesdropping. Before the internet, it didn’t matter. But in age where stories–whether true or not–are regurgitated instantly, it now matters that US Weekly did not report or write this story, that they just stole it and then lied about it. I can’t let them get away with it.

Mariah Carey has hinted there's truth behind reports she is expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon, confessing she's too "superstitious" to share any baby news right now.
Speculation has followed the couple since Mariah Carey pulled out of a Tyler Perry movie over mysterious health concerns in June (10), but she's yet to confirm or deny whether she's a mum-to-be.
New photos of the singer performing in Brazil and sporting what looks like a fuller figure raised fresh questions and forced Nick Cannon to backtrack over a recent denial. Nick Cannon told New York's 92.3 FM radio station on Monday (23Aug10): "When my wife feels like talking about whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her."
Mariah Carey then addressed the issue via a statement released by her publicist Cindi Berger on Thursday (26Aug10). But she refused to confirm or deny the reports - revealing even Berger doesn't know for sure if her client is expecting.
The statement reads: “I appreciate everyone’s well wishes. But I am very superstitious. When the time is right, everyone will know - even Cindi Berger."
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon wed after a whirlwind romance in 2008.

Mariah Sends Us A Message About Pregnancy Rumors: Exclusive

Hey kids, Mariah Carey has sent us a message via her publicist Cindi Berger. It turns out she’s been reading all the press on the internet, and has been fielding calls and emails from everyone — friends and relatives.
This is what she says:
“I appreciate everyone’s well wishes. But I am very superstitious. When the time is right, everyone will know–even Cindi Berger.”
That’s right–even Berger really doesn’t know if Mariah is with child. And she’s not asking. There has to be some line still between celebrity and privacy, especially when it comes to a matter so deeply personal and medical. We know way too much about famous people’s personal lives as it is. Let’s give Mariah the space to do what she has to.
Don’t forget: Jennifer Lopez didn’t announce she was pregnant until her twins were born! Jennifer Hudson also stayed mum about being a mum almost until her delivery.
I think when Mariah does eventually have a baby, Berger’s office is going to be fielding thousands of stuffed baby lambs and all kinds of butterflies.

Teen Mom Star Farrah: I Worry I "Can't Do It All on My Own"

Story photo: Teen Mom Star Farrah: I Worry I Marc Royce/UsWeeklyUs Magazine
For Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, life as a single mother (to Sophia, 18 months) is stressful enough. In the new issue of Us Weekly, the 19-year-old admits she was overwhelmed when she discovered she'd been scammed out of $3000.
PHOTOS: Famous, controversial moms
(As documented on the MTV hit's Aug. 17 episode, Abraham had wired $3000 in shipping costs to a person to whom she thought she had sold her car; the buyer's $8000 check turned out to be fraudulent, and her $3000 couldn't be recovered.)
After the scam, she says her parents lent support -- but no cash. "I have to feed and take responsibility for myself and Sophia, so I was definitely worried" about losing the $3000, she admits to Us. "I think it's melded into me that I can't do it all my own," adds the Iowa native.

The single mom (Sophia's dad Derek Underwood died a 2008 car accident, two months before her birth) is a culinary student and a part-time waitress; she moved out of the home she shared with her mom Debra Danielson following a January domestic dispute.

"[I've] gotten a little more used to it," she tells Us of her "intense" schedule, "but it's still hard."

What's in a Name? David Boreanaz's Daughter, Bardot Vita

Story photo: What's in a Name? David Boreanaz's Daughter, Bardot VitaJeffrey Mayer/WireImageUs Magazine editors Pamela Satran and Linda Rosenkrantz -- who penned the books Baby Name Bible and Beyond Ava & Aiden -- are blogging for about why celebs choose the names they do, and what they mean.
Happy first birthday, Bardot Vita Boreanaz!
BLOG: Read more "What's in a Name?" columns
David Boreanaz and wife Jaime Bergman entered a new first name into the lexicon when they chose Bardot for their daughter, born last August 31. The surname of '50s French star Brigitte Bardot combines two major celebrity baby name trends: vintage Hollywood glamour with the trendy "o" sound at the end.
PHOTOS: Stars' favorite free family activities
Little Bardot Boreanz was unique among her fellow starbabies until Sandra Bullock gave her newly-adopted son Louis the middle name Bardo this spring. Spelled without the silent final t, Bardo is the name of a medieval German saint and also an Aboriginal name meaning water. Bardo is also a Buddhist concept meaning "intermediate state."
The middle name, Vita, is an unusual Latin name meaning life. Other names that mean life include Vivienne, name of one of the twin children of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and Zoe, name of the daughters of both Rosanna Arquette and Woody Harrelson.

Other celebrity baby names that end with the fashionable o sound include Harlow, which also includes the Hollywood glamour element by relating to Jean Harlow; Banjo, son of Rachel Griffiths; Coco, daughter of Courteney Cox and David Arquette; Enzo, name of the sons of both Patricia Arquette and Annabeth Gish; Indio, Robert Downey Jr.'s son; Kenzo, son of Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Housou; Milo, chosen by Liv Tyler; Rocco, son of Madonna and Guy Ritchie; Romeo, second son of Victoria and David Beckham; and Viggo, son of Natalie and Taylor Hanson.

A Minute With: James Cameron talking new "Avatar"

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - When "Titanic" director James Cameron released his film "Avatar" last year, there were not as many theaters equipped with 3D equipment to screen the 3D version as he would have liked.
So, on Friday, film studio 20th Century Fox is releasing an "Avatar: Special Edition" version of the biggest blockbuster of all time ($2.7 billion in global ticket sales) exclusively in Imax 3D theaters and venues equipped with digital 3D.
Cameron spoke to Reuters about the nine minutes of new film on the "special edition," the movie's success, and whether movies or science is his favored pursuit.
Q: Why a new one? The first was pretty good.
A: "There are a couple of factors. There's footage I think people would be interested in. I don't want to completely reinvent the movie and turn it into something it's not. It's really more an embellishment; it's a fuller experience.
"The other factor is I think people want to see 'Avatar' in movie theaters. That's just my instinct. This all came about because when "Alice in Wonderland" came out, they had booked all the Imax 3D screens. We were still doing well, still selling out ... but we lost all those screens in one night. So, we knew there was still a market for people seeing the film."
Q: Many people, me included, thought, 'they already made $2.7 billion! How much more do they want?' Money grubbers?'"
A: "Yeah, we are just money grubbing vampires. (smiles) No, I think making money is called good business. At least, in this country it still is. And two, it's a side-effect of giving people what they want. If we're correct and this is what people want, then we've done a humanitarian service (laughs)."
Q: Right, Hollywood does perform humanitarian services.
A: "Sometimes. (laughs again) Sometimes it can, but it's usually just liberal guilt...
"No, it's like an illuminated manuscript, there's just more to it. I also want to encourage people to remember the movie in 3D on the big screen. And this will be the last hurrah ... It'll disappear from big screens -- other than an occasional Imax may want to book it -- for 10 years, 20 years, maybe forever."
Q: So, the new footage, what are people going to see?
A: "We got different kinds of stuff. Some of it little things, 10-, 15-, 30-second pops that just show up here and there where if you've seen the movie, you'll ask yourself, 'did I see that before, or is that new.'
"Then, there are going to be things like a big action scene where they hunt these herd animals that didn't even exist in the first movie because we'd cut them out. There are new creatures, a big flight scene, almost like a Buffalo hunt. I think it's one of the top visual scenes in the film.
"There's an emotional scene that plays out at the end where Tsu'tey is dying and there's a very emotional scene with Jake and Neytiri. Everybody thought I was crazy when I took it out. I did it for pace and tempo, but I was playing it pretty conservative. I was concerned about eye fatigue on a 2-hour and 40-minute film. I was concerned about sensory overload...
"We never got much criticism about length. I was expecting a lot. I was expecting at least critics to say, 'really good film' or 'pretty good film, but too long,' but we didn't get much of that. It seemed like we had permission to go longer."
Q: So, you and Fox have the two top grossing films of all time. Can you now get about anything you want from Fox?
A: "Do they listen to me more, now? Probably not, if they weren't going to listen to me after 'Titanic,' they're not going to listen to me now, any more or any less."
Q: You're doing another 'Avatar' film. Is there a third?
A: "The next script will be essentially two scripts, and I don't know if we'll shoot it together or shoot it separately. We'll release it separately, obviously.
"If that works, there will probably be another one, but at that point, I probably won't be directing them. I do want to do the second and probably the third film myself just because it's so much a part of me and my philosophy and ideas."
Q: Beyond movies, you've become a bona fide expert on deep underwater exploration. When all is said and done, what do you want to be remembered for -- big movies or exploration?
A: "What goes on the tombstone?" (laughs)
Q: Well, without having to ask it that way, yes.
A: "I'm satisfied with 'innovator' because it requires innovation to do all this deep ocean exploration. We're building lights, cameras, robotics, submersibles, fiber optic systems, and I love all that stuff. I love imagining something, building it, and making it work in the ocean...
"On the filmmaking side, there's the innovation of how you make the movie and there's the innovation of what the movie is, meaning the story, the characters, the creation of a world, the imagination required for that. I love all that stuff. The problem for me is task managing in such a way that I don't get so focused on one that I forget about doing the other."

What Lindsay Lohan Drank Her First Day Out of Rehab

Story photo: What Lindsay Lohan Drank Her First Day Out of RehabAKM ImagesUs Magazine
On Wednesday, Lindsay Lohan stepped out for the first time since leaving rehab.
In her hand as she walked through a Beverly Hills parking garage: ROCKSTAR, described on the company's website as "the world's most powerful energy drink."
PHOTOS: Lindsay Lohan and other stars' first modeling gigs
Should the 24-year-old actress -- now in UCLA's outpatient program and undergoing psychotherapy treatment -- be downing the beverage? Like all energy drinks, ROCKSTAR is loaded with caffeine (and sugar) which can make her jittery, cause insomnia and increase anxiety. (An 8.4-ounce energy drink serving contains 280 mg of caffeine, compared with about 100 mg per 6 ounces in coffee.)

Lohan was a no-show Wednesday night at the L.A. premiere of her latest big screen effort, Machete. (Earlier in the day, a judge ordered her to reside at her Los Angeles home.)
"God bless her," actor Don Johnson told "I care about her as a person."
Said actor Danny Trejo, "She's in control, she is professional, and she can really bring it. She is going to be all right.”

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- After a report surfaced on Wednesday claiming that Mariah Carey was four months pregnant, husband Nick Cannon continued to dodge questions about a possible baby when Access Hollywood caught up with him on Wednesday.
"When she's ready to say whatever she wants to say, she'll say it," Nick told Access backstage at "America's Got Talent" on Wednesday night when asked about his wife. "She's like, appreciating all the love that's coming out... from everywhere, but it's just like when she's ready to talk she'll talk."

As for his desire to be a dad, Nick has his sights on increasing the Cannon-Carey brood.
"That's the purpose of having a union and getting married is to have a family," Nick told Access. "Right now, her and I are family, but of course we would love to expand."

An Oscar-nominated actress will return to Law & Order: SVU this season — but don't get nervous, it's not Sharon Stone. It's Christine Lahti, reappearing as overbearing ADA Sonya Paxton sent by the DA's office to ride herd on the SVU team.

A nasty alcoholic, she butted heads with Stabler (Chris Meloni) and was eventually forced to enter rehab. Paxton reappeared in a later episode only to warn Alexandra Cabot (Stephanie March) not to trust the cops. She'll return in this season's ninth episode on a case and is supposedly all cleaned up. "She has a huge scene where she faces off with Stabler," SVU's executive producer Neal Baer tells TV Guide Magazine exclusively.

VIDEO: The Good Wife Gets Complicated in Season 2

When The Good Wife returns for its sophomore season, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) has a very tough decision to make: take a chance and start something new with her boss, Will, or take a chance and try to repair her marriage to her campaigning husband, Peter. No matter which path she chooses, things are about to get very complicated both at home and at the offices of the newly merged Lockhart, Gardner & Bond. Cary is ready to battle in the court room, Alicia's new mentor (hello, Michael Ealy!) is bringing some "Baltimore blood" to the conference room, and, of course, there's a another scandal waiting right around the corner.

Oh, and did we mention Alicia talks back to a judge? The good wife is the junior associate no longer.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: "I actually support gay marriage"
View creators and executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie are developing a unisex spinoff of the women's daytime talk show that would include a male perspective on daily topics, a source told the New York Daily News.
If ordered to series, the show would likely be produced in Los Angeles — as opposed The View's setting of New York — and air in an afternoon timeslot so as not to compete with its predecessor, according to the source.
Walters and Geddie's panel wish list, according to the source, includes Today's Bryant Gumbel and comedian Alec Mapa (Ugly Betty) for the guys, and BET news anchor Jacque Reid and former Fox News host E.D. Hill for the ladies.
An e-mail to ABC was not immediately returned.
